Biz Look: Crossings Church
At a time when churches can’t gather physically, Crossings Community Church is finding innovative ways to bring people together. “You’d think our ministry would be less busy, but it’s the opposite,” says Ryan Brown, Pastor of Location Development and Connections.
New Options for Worship
Like many churches, Crossings offers a live feed of Sunday worship. And they’ve recently added new twist. Viewers can now choose whether to stream the contemporary or traditional service, which each feature a different style of music. Special children’s programming follows each service.
The church even held an online Communion service on Palm Sunday, with members making their own bread at home and all partaking at once. “We’re being very creative in how we can still celebrate the sacraments,” says Ryan.
Anyone can watch or listen to services on several different platforms, including the church website, Facebook Live, YouTube, and Zoom. Sermons and worship music are available to stream any time.
